What the Redskins should avoid this season

During this hectic off-season, there have been many transactions taking place. Free Agency is a very busy time of the year and is far from over. So far, the Redskins have been making some key pickups that definitely have the chance to improve the Franchise and hopefully lead to a winning season.

After the recent Tim Tebow trade, I have some advice for Dan Snyder: Do NOT pick up a high-profile ‘backup’ for ANY position. Having a star player warm the bench will only lead to controversy and unnecessary media attention. The Jets’ starting QB, Mark Sanchez, has to know the pressure is on. The relentless NY media will be calling for Tebow as soon as Sanchez screws up, which can lead to a divisive locker room and tension between the players. Regardless of the Jets organization announcing that Tebow will be a “wild cat QB” I can assure you that, if Sanchez does not lead them to a 3-0 start, Tim Tebow will be starting by week 4!

So I am hoping the Redskins do not make the same mistake and put any unnecessary pressure on any of our key starters by bringing in a star player to play ‘backup’. This might seem like a no-brainer to any sensible General Manager, but as we can see, sometimes GMs do make mistakes.
